KUCHING: Maggi has partnered with Food Aid Foundation (FAF) and Malaysia Association for the Blind (MAB) to distribute over 120,000 bowls of ‘Maggi Bubur Lambuk’ (porridge) to more than 200 locations nationwide.
In a statement, Maggi said among others, ‘bubur lambuk’ would be given to B40 families, orphanages, welfare homes and charitable organisations throughout the month of Ramadan.
This year’s recipients would also include the homeless, people with disabilities as well as healthcare workers and frontliners.
